Keeley Selvage is a Clinical Aesthetician who shows people how to make their own skin solutions. She was one of the first to inspire me to start making homemade body care. Learn how to make homemade Body Butter in this video and the recipe is written below.
TIP: Remember, you don’t have to go along exactly with the recipe. For example: instead of using Almond Oil, you can choose your favourite all natural oil, you can totally improvise! I love using Apricot Kernel Oil as an omega rich carrier oil and doesn’t leave an oily feel. It’s high in Vitamins A and C and helps retain elasticity and soften the skin, so I give it two thumbs up for age fighting! Enjoy the video!
10 oz. Shea Butter [Use the double boiler method (heat safe dish inside a pot of boiling water) to soften the Shea Butter]
Heat until soft and easy to mix
6 oz. Almond Oil (Or any other of your favourite oils, like Apricot Kernal Oil)
2 tsp Corn Starch (Optional)
Peppermint Essential Oil, a couple drops, or half an ounce
Store in an air tight container and is best kept refrigerated
